There has never been a better time to help our community flourish forever! The Lac du Bonnet & District Charitable Foundation encourages residents from Lac du Bonnet and surrounding area to make a gift to the LDB Foundation as part of the Endow Manitoba’s Giving Challenge. This event has been extended this year from 24 hours to one full week of giving, November 9-15.

The Giving Challenge is a major fund-raiser for the Lac du Bonnet & District Community Foundation. All donations received during this event go directly to the LDB Foundation to help build the Foundation’s Endowment Fund. The interest generated from the fund is used to support local community projects that help make Lac du Bonnet and area a more caring and vibrant community today and well into the future.

The LDB Foundation is pleased to announce that once again, a very generous group of local philanthropists have come forward to finance a Challenge Group Fund.  This fund will be used during the Giving Challenge week to encourage donations by matching them dollar for dollar.

In addition, the Winnipeg Foundation and the Manitoba Government will be stretching donations by an additional 20 percent each up to $2000. Between these top-ups and the Challenge Group Fund, a $1.00 donation made to the LDB Foundation from November 9-15 has the potential to stretch to $2.80.
